Review: Break the Walls, a comic based on music from the Pixies.

Break The Walls

Creativity and inspiration are mighty powerful bedfellows. Growing up during the modernized age of enlightenment, or in laymen terms, the 1980s.

I became obsessed with having my subcultures combined. I would find ways of having my music be the life track to my toys and as soon as I discovered comics I would be caught endlessly listening to the Ramones as my backdrop to Stray Toasters. Led Zeppelin’s 10 years gone was the travel song of Havoc and Wolverine. I remember finding the Crow and learning all about Joy Division.

 

 

Finding comics that actually used music as their inspiration is more rare than comics about music groups. Just look at any Kiss comic for that. This brings me to the collective work in this comic. Each story has something very much Pixies inspired but also retains its own voice, its own style.

The first tale, Planet of Sound, re-imagines the detective noir with a new twist on its structure.

Each story without spoilers has a completely different art style and story arc that sometimes finding the inner Pixie maybe a little daunting.

This title is a MUST buy for every Pixie fan and fan of indie/gritty underground-esque comic books. If and when you buy this collection, listen to it with each song playing in the background. I’m hoping for more comics like this in the near future.

If I can leave a final thought it’s this…

With the haunting intro to Where Is My Mind firmly placed in my frontal lobes it resonates through my eyes in a feast of comic bliss, making this comic a future contender for iconic books of the 21 century.

Hey by the way! You can pick up a copy of the book here amazon or go to SpazDog Press to find out about their other projects! (from yours truly – Link happy Chuck)

  1. Hi! I understand this is kind of off-topic however I needed to
    ask. Does building a well-established website like yours
    take a lot of work? I am completely new to operating a blog however I do
    write in my journal every day. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

  2. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content seem to be running
    off the screen in Chrome. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to
    let you know. The design and style look great though!
    Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Kudos

  3. An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a co-worker who had been conducting a little homework on this.
    And he actually ordered me dinner due to the fact that I found it for him.
    .. lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thank YOU for
    the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending the time to discuss this subject here on your site.

  4. Admiring the dedication you put into your website and detailed information you offer.

  6. The river is a confluence of the North and the South Tyne which
    converge near Hexham in Northumberland. When you are presented
    with a host of options, you should be careful in which one you
    pick. When terrorists and unfriendly governments attack the
    CIA with far more sophisticated means, does that mean they are
    going completely undetected.

  7. If you are caught by police in Los Angeles, California drunk driving for the third time, there is no way out of
    a period of time in prison. It seems like finding a Seattle
    DUI attorney would simple; just grab the phone book and find a lawyer who
    handles DUI cases. His defense for me was so strong that it helped lower my fines, eliminated
    the chance of jail time and allowed me to keep my California driving license.

    If you find that your drain is clogged, think about hiring a plumber to do a estimate and tell you what the
    issue is.

  9. The process involves the use of a camera port that allows a lateral push camera to be inserted inside the translucent bladder, offering visual clear
    cut verification of the liner placement. Before
    back filling the trench completely, I dig a two foot wide hole at the end of the pipe for additional runoff drainage that I
    fill with gravel as well then cover (optional).
    There should only be one residence whose waste is being carried with the house sewer.
